Abigail & Brittany Hensel (Age 19) Abigail "Abby" Loraine Hensel and Brittany "Britty" Lee Hensel (born March 7, 1990, Carver County, Minnesota, United States), are highly symmetric dicephalic parapagus conjoined twins. They have two spines and separate half-sacrums, which converge distally within a slightly broad pelvis. Each controls and senses her corresponding arm and leg; a third, rudimentary central arm was amputated in infancy. They were raised in New Germany, Minnesota and attended Lutheran High School affiliated with the Missouri Synod in Mayer, Minnesota. At age 12, they underwent surgery at Gillette Children's Specialty Healthcare to correct scoliosis and to expand their chest cavity to prevent future difficulties with breathing. Each of the twins manages one side of their conjoined body and are quite effective in cooperatively using their limbs when both hands or both legs are required. By coordinating their efforts, they are able to walk, run and ride a bicycle normally - all tasks that they learned at a normal speed. Each writes with her hand. Together, they can type on a computer keyboard at a normal speed. They had 2 hearts which, however, are in a shared circulatory system (nutrition, respiration, medicine taken by either affects both). Most of their shared organs are located at or below the level of their shared navel.
It should be confirmed that Each twin controls her half of their body, operating one of the arms and one of the legs. While each is able to eat and write separately and simultaneously, activities such as running and swimming must be coordinated and alternate symmetrically. Other activities as diverse as brushing hair and driving a car require that each twin perform a sequence of quite separate actions that coordinate with the other. comment : Malformations are frequent on the animals and the human ones!
